UPDATE: Yet Another GOP Lawmaker Joins Movement To OUST Johnson

Calls to remove Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House continue to grow.

Following a motion to vacate filed by Marjorie Taylor Greene, several GOP lawmakers signed on to the motion as supporting members of Congress.

WLTR recently reported on Rep. Thomas Massie’s co-sponsorship of the motion to oust Mike Johnson.

Now, we are seeing Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) throw his support behind the initiative to replace Johnson with a truly conservative Speaker.

The GOP lawmaker penned a formal press release and announced on Friday:

According to The New York Post:

Republicans hold a three-vote majority in the House, meaning Democrats would need to step in to oppose disgruntled conservatives should they move ahead on a vote to strip the gavel from Johnson (R-La.).

“We will have a conversation about how to deal with any hypothetical motion to vacate, which at this point hasn’t been noticed,” House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) told reporters Friday.

Rep. Matt Gaetz issued this warning on ousting Johnson: “I regret to inform the country that, in a one-seat majority, there could be 1-3 of my GOP colleagues who would take a BRIBE in order to deprive the Republicans of our majority.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene had this to say: “Mike Johnson is working behind the scenes with Democrats to save his speakership.

He owes our entire conference a meeting explaining his plans to change the rules WITH DEMOCRAT HELP on Motion to Vacate.

I filed a Motion to Vacate because Johnson has became the Democrat Speaker of the House. And with his actions, he’s proving to everyone I was right.”

Daily Mail noted:

Johnson long said he would not back money to bolster Ukraine’s border before the U.S.’s.

On Saturday he will put a $95 billion foreign aid package with $60 billion for Ukraine on the House floor.
